I installed a Dynex DX-E402 wired router a few months back. I can log onto the internet just fine but have problems here and there:
-MSN mail is dead, will not send or receive
-cannot not post messages or pics on certain forums
-cannot upload videos or watch most youtube videos
-cannot access some websites entirely past main page
-website drop menus sometimes act dead or websites never load
I let this go on for months before getting fed up. As soon as I unplug the router and run just off of the original modem, everything comes back to life and works dandy. The problems happen with any web browser I use (firefox, msn etc), not just one.
I called Dynex tech support. They said because I can gain internet access the router, that there's nothing to configure within this router. They said something within "my computer" will need configured. They referred me to geek squad.
On another forum, I did see a post that said you can adjust configurations within some Dynex routers by typing in: 192.168.1.1 into the address bar. I tried that but can't get any further then the "Authentication/ Password page. I don't know the password and the default password: "password" does not work.
But maybe Dynex is correct in that something within my computer needs configured.?.?

I'm not very tech savvy at all so any advice must be explained in terms in which a 3rd grader could understand it.
ANY HELP GREATLY APPRECIATED!!
